In-Home Hospice Care
Our staff of Nurses, Certified Nursing Assistant, Social Worker, and Chaplain are available to provide care in-home. This team will access needs on a regular basis to ensure that we are providing the very best care.
In-Patient Hospice Care
You always have the option of staying in our beautiful, state of the art Hospice House. It is a 12 bed facility, equipped with a kitchen, family room, and pleasant care givers. We also encourage you to take a stroll through our garden while you are there. We welcome family and friends for visits.
Our Hospice House is available to those with terminal illnesses for Respite Care. We offer a maximum 5 day respite stay, designed to take care of those diagnosed with a terminal illness while giving the family or care giver a short break, as we understand that what you do on a daily basis is so important. However, remember to take care of yourself as well.
A professionally trained chaplain is assigned to each of our patients without regard to race, ethnic, origin, economic status, or religious beliefs. Special care is given to offer the upmost sensitivity in our spiritual care. Chaplain's services also include the families of our patients. Our chaplain is available for scriptures and prayers at the bedside, family and group devotions in the chapel, and private meetings with individuals when needed. Our chaplain always encourages and respects the ministries of our patients' pastors and other ministers when they are available.
